The Braya Renewable Fuels refinery in Come By Chance, Newfoundland and Labrador is a repurposed petroleum refinery that has been converted into a renewable fuels production facility. The facility commenced commercial operations in February 2024 and anticipates an initial production capacity of 18,000 barrels per day of renewable diesel, with future plans to expand production capacity, add sustainable aviation fuel production capabilities, and explore green hydrogen production.
The on-site production of renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuel, and green hydrogen offers proven alternatives to fossil fuels and significantly decreases the carbon emissions linked to hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy-duty transport, aviation, and heavy industry.
The refinery’s strategic location enables it to source low-carbon intensity feedstocks from anywhere in the world while delivering sustainable fuels to low-carbon markets in North America and Europe.
PRODUCING RENEWABLE DIESEL
Braya Renewable Fuels completed a retrofit to a portion of the refinery to process feedstocks, which include soybean oil and distiller’s corn oil, into 18,000 barrels per day (bpd) of renewable diesel. All feedstock will be received by ships via the dock, and all renewable products will be shipped by ships via the dock. Tankage will be repurposed to house feedstock and products.
Braya Renewable Fuels is grateful for the ongoing support from local, provincial, and federal governments as well as the local Newfoundland and Labrador community. Braya Renewable Fuels is proud to provide stable and long-term employment opportunities in the local community.
